Come out and take me by my hand
Gonna bury all our troubles in the sand, oh yeah
Cant you see the wonder at your feet
Your lifes complete
Follow me down
Cant you see me growing, get your guns
The time has come
To follow me down
Follow me across the sea
Where milky babies seem to be
Molded, flowing revelry
With the one that set them free
Tell all the people that you see
Its just me
Follow me down
Tell all the people that you see
Follow me

Tell all the people that you see
Well be free

Cant you see that I am not afraid?
What was that promise that you made?

Now, Im gonna love you, till the heavens stop the rain
Im gonna love you
Till the stars fall from the sky for you and i
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Now touch me, baby
Cant you see that I am not afraid?
What was that promise that you made?
Why wont you tell me what she said?
What was that promise that you made?
Im gonna love you, till the heavens stop the rain
Im gonna love you
Till the stars fall from the sky for you and i
Im gonna love you, till the heavens stop the rain
Im gonna love you
Till the stars fall from the sky for you and i

Shaman's Blues
There will never be, another one like you
There will never be, another one who can
Do the things you do, oh
Will you give another chance? , will you try, little try?
Please stop and you remember,
We were together, anyway, all right
And if you have a certain evenin, you could lend to me
Id give it all right back to you, a how it has to be with you
I know your moves and your mind
And your mind x6
Will you stop and think and wonder?
Just what youll see
Out on the train yard
Nursin penitentiary
Its gone, I cry out long
Go head, brother
Did you stop it to consider? , how it will feel
Cold, grinded grizzly bear jaws, hot on your heels
Do you often stop and whisper?
Its saturdays shore
The whole worlds a savior
Who could ever, ever, ever
Ever, ever, ever, ask for more?
Do you remember?
Will you stop? , will you stop? , the pain
And there will never be
Another one like you
There will never be
Another one who can
Do the things you do, oh
Will you give another chance?
Will you try, little try?
Please stop and you remember
We were together, anyway, all right
How you must of think and wondered
How I must feel
Out on the meadows
While you run the field
Im alone for you
And I cry
The sweat, look at it, optical promise
Heh, heh, heh, youll be dead and in hell
Before Im born, sure thing
Brides maid, the only solution
Isnt it amazing?

Easy Ride
And I know
It will be
An easy ride, all right
And I know
It will be
Easy ride, ok

The mask that you wore
My fingers would explore
Costume of control
Excitement soon unfolds

And I know
It will be
Easy ride, yeah
Joy, for vaguely
Which your pride
Which your pride, yeah

Black polished stone
Black polished stone
I see your eyes
Like burnin glass
Like burnin glass
Hear you smile, smile, babe

The mask that you wore
My fingers would explore
Costume of control
Excitement soon unfolds, hey

Easy, baby

Call the queen, now
Be my bride
Ragin darkness
By my side
Seize the summer
In your pride
Take the winter
In your stride

Lets ride, yeah
Easy, easy, easy
Easy, easy, ease, easy
Yeah, yeah, ride
Dum, dum, dum, dum
Dum, dum, dum
Ride

Wild Child
All right, wild child full of grace
Savior of the human race, your cool face
Natural child, terrible child
Not your mothers or your fathers child
Your our child, screamin wild
An ancient lunatic reigns in the trees of the night
Ha, ha, ha, ha
With hunger at her heels, freedom in her eyes
She dances on her knees, pirate prince at her side
Stirrin into a hollow idols eyes
Wild child full of grace, savior of the human race
Your cool face, your cool face, your cool face
Do you remember when we were in africa?

Ronnin' Blue
Poor otis dead and gone
Left me here to sing his song
Pretty little girl with the red dress on
Poor otis dead and gone

Yeah, back down, turn around slowly
Try it again, remembering when
It was easy, try it again
Much to easy, rememberin when

All right, look at my shoes
Not quite the walkin blues
Dont fight, too much to lose
Cant fight the runnin blues

Well, Ive got the runnin blues
Runnin away, back to l.a.
Got to find the dock of the bay
Maybe find it back in l.a.

Runnin scared
Runnin blue
Goin so fast
Whatll I do

Well, Ive got the runnin blues
Runnin away, back to l.a.
Got to find the dock of the bay
Maybe find it back in l.a.

All right, look at my shoes
Not quite the walkin blues
Dont fight, too much to lose
Cant fight the runnin blues

All right, look at my shoes
Not quite the walkin blues
Dont fight, too much to lose
Cant fight the runnin blues

Wishful Sinful
Wishful crystal
Water covers everything in blue
Coolin water
Wishful sinful
Our love is beautiful to see
I know where I would like to be
Right back where I came
Wishful, sinful, wicked blue
Water covers you
Wishful, sinful, wicked you
Cant escape the blue
Magic risin
Sun is shinin deep beneath the sea
But not enough for you and me and sunshine
Love to hear the wind cry
Wishful sinful
Our love is beautiful to see
I know where I would like to be
Right back where I came
Wishful, sinful, wicked blue
Water covers you
Wishful, sinful, wicked you
Cant escape the blue
Love to hear the wind cry
Love to hear you cry, yeah, yeah

The Soft Parade
When I was back there in seminary school, there was a person there
Who put forth the proposition, that you can petition the lord with prayer
Petition the lord with prayer, petition the lord with prayer
You cannot petition the lord with prayer!
Can you give me sanctuary, I must find a place to hide, a place for me to hide
Can you find me soft asylum, I cant make it anymore, the man is at the door
Peppermint, miniskirts, chocolate candy, champion sax and a girl named sandy
Theres only four ways to get unraveled, one is to sleep and the other is travel, da da
One is a bandit up in the hills, one is to love your neighbor till
His wife gets home
Catacombs, nursery bones, winter women, growing stones
Carrying babies, to the river
Streets and shoes, avenues, leather riders
Selling news, the monk bought lunch
Ha ha, he bought a little, yes, he did, woo!
This is the best part of the trip, this is the trip, the best part
I really like, whatd he say? , yeah!, yeah, right!
Pretty good, huh, huh!, yeah, Im proud to be a part of this number
Successful hills are here to stay, everything must be this way
Gentle streets where people play, welcome to the soft parade
All our lives we sweat and save, building for a shallow grave
Must be something else we say, somehow to defend this place
Everything must be this way, everything must be this way, yeah
The soft parade has now begun, listen to the engines hum
People out to have some fun, a cobra on my left
Leopard on my right, yeah
The deer woman in a silk dress, girls with beads around their necks
Kiss the hunter of the green vest, who has wrestled before
With lions in the night
Out of sight!, the lights are getting brighter
The radio is moaning, calling to the dogs
There are still a few animals, left out in the yard
But its getting harder, to describe sailors, to the underfed
Tropic corridor, tropic treasure
What got us this far, to this mild equator?
We need someone or something new
Something else to get us through, yeah, cmon
Callin on the dogs, callin on the dogs
Oh, its gettin harder, callin on the dogs
Callin in the dogs, callin all the dogs, callin on the gods
You gotta meet me, too late, baby
Slay a few animals, at the crossroads, too late
All in the yard, but its gettin harder, by the crossroads
You gotta meet me, oh, were goin, were goin great
At the edge of town, tropic corridor, tropic treasure
Havin a good time, got to come along, what got us this far
To this mild equator? , outskirts of the city, you and i
We need someone new, somethin new, somethin else to get us through
Better bring your gun, better bring your gun
Tropic corridor, tropic treasure, were gonna ride and have some fun
When all else fails, we can whip the horses eyes
And make them sleep, and cry





The Doors Játra tohoto chlapce opravdu nejsou v pořádku. Pokud nepřestane pít, dlouho žít nebude.
(doktor)
The Doors Vždycky mě štvalo, když při koncertech okouněla policie a čekala, kdy nás bude moci sebrat za nějaký slovo nebo něco, co jsme provedli... ale počítali jsme s tím. Bylo to součástí show. Střetávaly se tu dvě síly - jedna, co podněcovala změny, a druhá, která chtěla, aby vše zůstalo při starém. V takových situacích je prostě nutné najít nějakou rovnováhu.
(Robbie Krieger)
